Über dieses Buch

This research examines the evaluation criteria for logistics real estate and explores the implementation of future trends from an investor's perspective, with a specific focus on European logistics real estate as an asset class. Eight industry experts were interviewed to understand the current state of the European logistics real estate market and predict its future development, providing readers with guidance for investments. Adjusting for risks associated with the political and economic climate may exert pressure on investment returns. Nevertheless, European logistics real estate remains an attractive investment opportunity with promising returns and low correlation to other asset classes.

Logistics plays a vital role in the economy, supplying goods to companies and households. Given its transformative impact on industries and its enduring relevance, logistics real estate has become a targeting asset class for forward-thinking investors.

This textbook has been recommended and developed for universitary courses in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

1. Introduction
Abstract
Investment opportunities are becoming increasingly rare and institutional investors are under great pressure to generate returns on their assets. While most commercial real estate asset classes such as office, brick-and-mortar retail, or hotels have been negatively affected by the measures taken to contain the pandemic, the market for logistics investments is proving to be extremely robust and crisis-resistant. One can even say that logistics real estate is flourishing.
